Deficits in energy production & utilization linked to increasing fatigability with aging

A new publication from our group led by Dr. Jennifer Schrack shows that a combination of low peak capacity and high energy costs for mobility contribute to rising fatigability with aging.

Congrats to Pablo Martinez Amezcua, MD, MHS!

Physical fatigability linked to cognitive decline

A new publication from our group (led by former ENGAGEr Dr. Liz Salerno (NCI)) suggests higher perceived fatigability is associated with greater rates of cognitive decline at follow-up.

Congrats to Perry Kuo, MD, MPH
